1979 Harvest Moon Ball

Madison Square Gardens, New York - Wednesday, August 31st.


    The Harvest Moon Ball was one of the biggest couple dance contests for amateur dancers ever held in the United States. The HMB was held in New York at Madison Square Gardens as well as other cites throughout the U.S from 1935 to 1984. The 'Hustle' was again included in this years competition lineup. There was no Jitterbug or Lindy Hop in this years competition.

 

    These are the Official HMB standings available for the year 1979 and should not to be confused with the Mama Lu Parks Harvest Moon Lindy contest held during this year.
